I watched this on ted.com the other night. It's a 20 minute lecture on how a One World Economic system would be greatly beneficial to the world by bringing more idea creators and idea needs to market.

I believe what he says, I really do. He makes great points with hard data. But, we do not live in a perfect world. The thing that worries me is, when India and China do bring 100's of millions out of poverty and into the middle class are they going to be well "educated driven innovative free thinkers" or are they going to be like most of the American middle class, "expert consumers" dumb ed down by the system?

I will leave you with this.
